RE: Voltage Issue - '97 K2500 7.4L Suburban

It could be a problem with the dash unit gauge. The dash units are a one-piece assembly and you have to send them off to be repaired. I did it on one of my sons' GM vehicles. Good luck with your repairs. Miles

RE: Used RV Loans

We had no trouble getting a loan on our 1989 HR. Try a credit union. Miles

RE: How to get to the master cylnder of an 1983 southwind

I cut an access hole through the floor directly to the top of the master cylinder. It only took a few hours to cut the hole and make a hatch to cover it out of diamond plate. It dramatically increased my motivation to properly check the brake fluid on a consistent basis, so it was well worth it. Miles

RE: Refrigerator options

Opinions on these forums tend to be weighted towards replacing RV absorption refrigerators with residential AC units. But if you plan on doing a lot of dry camping, I would not recommend it unless you have a large battery bank or even a solar set-up. The absorption refrigerators can run on gas for days with very little power, that's why they are in RV's. If yours doesn't work, figure out why. It might just be the circuit board. If it's the cooling unit, you can buy a new or rebuilt one without having to buy a new fridge. I changed the cooling unit out on my fridge for a little over $300. Miles

RE: coil

Not sure. Funny that you should ask, as I am having the same problem with my tachometer right now and could use some guidance myself. Miles

RE: Anybody install a Water manifold in RV

Whenever I do any work on my S&B (home) plumbing I always install shut-offs. It makes any future work much easier. I think the idea has just as much value for an RV. Miles

RE: Jack stands on 7000 lb rear ax.

I use 6 ton stands when I work on my HR. Make sure that the stands are the right height to use and extend under the frame. I also have a smaller set of stands for the axles. I also have a set of ramps which I prefer to use when I can. Miles (My kids are going to curse me when they have to get rid of all this junk someday.)

RE: Please help. 84 fleetwood southwind brakes

What chassis is your RV, a Chevy? For info try contacting Geoffrey Rosenburg at Alretta Truck Parts #508-788-9409. He is an expert at older RV brake systems. What about the repair is giving you worries? It isn't much different than doing one on a passenger car. Not sure what you mean by the air coil. Your RV might have air bags in the front springs. Look at them and see. If you have them the air lines are sometimes routed into the front access area. You should see an air line with a Schrader valve on either side. Good luck with your repairs.

RE: More Colorado route questions

As to 4 C), I would rate the Pike's Peak Cog Railway as being at least in the same league as Trail Ridge Road, and you wouldn't have to drive it. Miles

RE: Portable oxygen concentrator questions..

I recently helped buy one for my mother. We chose the Respironics SimplyGo because it seemed to be the most portable machine that could still deliver 2-liter continuous flow. She uses it both as a portable and as a stationary unit when she visits here in Colorado. She likes it because it fits in the basket of a shopping cart when she goes out. Use the internet to research what will work best for you, I'm sure that the Equal Eclipse is probably a very good unit as well. We actually used Craigslist to find a local dealer for her in AZ. (Just go on Craigslist and do a search on the name of the unit you want to buy and the dealers' ads will come up.) She found a reputable shop that gave her a competitive price and also accepts the units for warranty work. Note that the newer models are sent back to the factory for repair. Local dealers can repair the older units once the newer models come out. Any concentrator will need to be rebuilt from time to time. A dealer told me that they only last half as long in Colorado as they do in lower elevations. Make sure that you get at least a 2-year warranty. If the compressor goes out after that you'll have to decide between rebuilding it or getting a newer model. I hope that you find a good unit that meets your needs. The concentrator makes my mother much more comfortable. Miles

RE: Possible relocation to Minnesota questions.

I enjoyed growing up in the midwest. I miss it sometimes and I wish that I could visit more often. I plan to be buried there. But I would never move back.

RE: Older MH repair parts - hard to find? Pls advise!

If you have any serious need for body parts then your rv will probably be totaled anyway so I wouldn't worry about it. Miles

RE: Altitude sickness

When my mother comes to visit us here in Colorado from Arizona she definitely feels the altitude. She got a prescription and bought a portable O2 concentrator which keeps her comfortable even when we go up in the mountains. Many people rent them when they come here to visit. Miles

RE: 1986 Holiday Rambler

A picture of the switch might help. As to the generator, on my HR the generator fuel hose is t'd off of the mechanical fuel pump gas return hose. Miles

RE: RV refrigerator,, repair or replace??

I'll comment on the older than 10 years case. Much cheaper to repair. Both the cooling unit and the circuit board are easy do-it-yourself jobs. The refrigerator itself is just an insulated box. As long as you are content with the design, no need to replace. Miles

RE: Screw pulled out of wall.... best fix??

In similar situations for my HR I have used toggle bolts. They are similar to the molly's. I use the smaller sizes. A big box store will have either type. Miles

RE: Renting RV Late Dec. - Phoenix-Denver...All Routes Unsafe?

A winter trip is possible with a lot of luck and careful planning. I sometimes use my RV in the winter for fishing trips. First winterize the water tank and lines, you won't be using them. Instead I use water from the square blue jugs with spigots. They can be set on the counter and used just like faucets. We also take showers from a bucket with a little electric shower pump that my wife found. The toilet can be flushed with some water from a bucket. Pour a lot of anti-freeze down into the waste tanks and dump them as soon as possible. Such a trip is totally weather-dependant. I don't drive my RV in the mountains during snow. Miles
